About Gary & Karen Ellis

I am a builder/construction person in our home state of Michigan, and my wife is a master gardener. We love our Florida home and have made many improvements to this upscale location in a 24-hr gated community.

Gary & Karen Ellis purchased this house in 2001

Why Gary & Karen Ellis chose Lake Berkley

Situated in an ideal spot on the lake, guests can relax with beautiful scenery, while also enjoying a large pool area, a 32-jet heated spa. There is a landscape hedge on both sides of our pool for privacy with the rear open, and no fence to spoil the view.The entire lanai is screened in, so there are no bugs! The pool faces southeast so there is a.m. and p.m. sun. For those who prefer a shady area, the covered part of the lanai will provide this, after mid-morning. The pool will be partially shaded by mid-afternoon.

What makes this house unique

We have included all linens, cooking utensils, dishes, glasses, towels, hair dryers and an iron. Also available are tennis rackets and fishing poles. Our gated community offers a clubhouse with a large lap heated pool, children's splash area with water guns and fountains, a hot tub with indoor game room, pool tables, exercise room. The resort lake is stocked with 4,000 fish and boasts a lookout pier and walking paths. One of the best locations overlooking our island of nature with tropical birds and you can site poolside and watch the bass jump!! Our 24-hour Super-center Wal-Mart is within walking distance and will fulfill all your groceries, banking, and pharmacy needs. Disney attractions are within 10 minutes!!

Guestbook comments from the owner

hi Gary just wanted to let you know we arrived back in Ireland this evening. We were heartbroken leaving your stunning villa, everyone of us had a superb holiday from the little ones right up to the grandparents in our party the villa was so spacious and comfortable and even though the weather in our second week was not so good everyone had a blast, I don't think sitting in my back garden for breakfast tomorrow will ever compare to my breakfast at your pool overlooking the Island! I have left a little gift from Ireland with the management lady its means a hundred thousand welcomes in Irish!! Many many thanx again and maybe in a few years we will be lucky enough to visit again Px

We stayed here last fall for a week and it was truly wonderful. The home was very clean and spacious and the host went out of his way to call every couple days to make sure everything was going well. The only think I felt it lacked was the sufficient cooking items (pots and pans, large toaster) for a home that large. I mentioned that to Gary after our stay and he immediately bought a commerical set of circulon cooking items! I can not wait to go back so I can use them all.

Also the lake was great for fishing, only problem was we had "visiting gator" but it really quite fun becuase the "gator patrol" came daily trying to catch him but as soon as they came he would hide! But not to worry normally they are not in the lake, but someone how this one found his way there.

Very nice, clean, and secure home!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great week in this beautiful home. Spent a lot of time in the pool. Even did some fishing and caught some blue gills. We felt safe in this secured gated community. The only minor thing I might change would be the blinds in the master bedroom. We weren't able to open them. Overall it was a great place to stay and would recommend staying here. Thank you very much!

We throughly enjoyed our stay at this property! The house is great and everything we needed was provided from linens to kitchen essentials. The view is phenomenal! We really enjoyed the evenings by the pool watching the birds returning to bird island. It was so peaceful! We would definitely recommend this property to any one coming to Orlando! Can't wait to come back!
